We stayed here for 6 nights in jan with 2 children (6 & 8). There are certainly ups and downs to the place;
The restaurant food is delicious, limited menu but everything tasty (plus we made friends with the restaurant staff and they gave us weird tasty fruits to try!)
It's quiet, the days we stayed at the hotel, the kids pretty much had the pool to themselves
It's small. We sat in the restaurant and enjoyed several laid back beers whilst the kids slept in their beds within eyesight (priceless). Also met other travelling parents who made our holiday! Like our own private bar :)
Free taxi to Ao Nang twice a day or cheaper than normal cab other times of day. (200baht each way)
The room was spacious, two king sized beds in the room plus lounge dining room separate.
Restaurant staff, super friendly, helpful and eager to please ( plus yummy food)
It's very chilled out for reading a book and watching the sunshine/view in a nice poolside location and as it's a small place there are never many people to share the place with.
The breakfast isn't outstanding, but they will cook fresh eggs for you if you ask.
The room was a bit tired, beds clean but pillows shockingly uncomfy &bathroom not great
Cleaning staff were very sporadic and only seemed to turn up when we were all getting ready to go out at 5pm ish (and in states of undress) then grumpy because they couldn't clean!
They didn't clean each day so we had to ask for water and toilet paper.
Reception staff were a bit standoffish and frankly, at times could not be bothered!
It is away from the life and soul of ao nang so you do feel a bit away from it all.
The room safe did not work (and did not get looked at despite asking) the shower handle fell off the wall. Other residents had terrible problems with sewerage coming through floor plus sewer smells in other rooms, although we didn't .
Overall, we had a nice, safe stay as a family. It wasn't hard to get into town for a bit more atmosphere and was just right for the age of our kids to retreat to on a night. The price was exactly what you pay for 3 star thai style. Don't know that I would recommend to friends with kids and certainly not to people without.
